Walmart Inc. has announced the expansion of its InHome delivery service to an additional 10 million U.S. households, including those in metro Detroit.

Customers in Detroit, Warren, and Dearborn now will have access to the delivery convenience. InHome is designed to be a time saver for customers by delivering fresh groceries and everyday essentials to their doorstep or unpacking items directly into their kitchen or garage refrigerators.

“The expansion of InHome comes at the perfect time for families in Detroit who are embarking on the busy summer season and are looking for faster, more convenient ways to complete those everyday chores,” says Haley McShane, general manager of InHome, Walmart U.S. “We understand that customers are busy and want to make sure that they can have a seamless shopping experience that fits their needs.”

In addition to the Detroit market, Walmart is expanding the service to also include customers in Boston, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and San Bernardino, bringing the total scale of InHome to more than 50 markets covering over 45 million homes.

Walmart launched InHome delivery in 2019 to help make shopping easier. Since then, the retailer has made millions of InHome deliveries to customers’ homes. InHome associates are tenured, vetted, and specially trained by Walmart for this service, the retailer states.

Here’s how InHome works:

  • Order: To place an order for InHome delivery, customers shop Walmart.com or the Walmart app for items eligible for store delivery and select the InHome delivery window that’s most convenient for them.
  • Deliver: A trained InHome associate completes the delivery to the customer’s preferred location. If it’s to the interior of the home, the associate will use a one-time access code to unlock the customer’s door or garage. A wearable camera is on the associates’ vest, recording the entire delivery, which customers have access to from their phones for up to a week after each delivery.

InHome is available as an add-on to Walmart+ membership for $12.95 per month or $98 per year program. Customers who are already members of Walmart+ can now add unlimited fee-free and tip-free InHome delivery for an extra $7 per month or $40 per year.

Walmart+ members have access to a suite of digital and in-store benefits like unlimited free deliveries, fuel and travel discounts, access to free pet telehealth visits through Pawp, early access to promotions and events, Paramount+ streaming and so much more.

With fiscal year 2024 revenue of $648 billion, Walmart employs approximately 2.1 million associates worldwide.
